"Refuse/resist" as written by Massimiliano A. Cavalera, Andreas Rudolf Kisser, Igor Cavalera and Paulo Xisto Jr. Pinto....
Chaos A.D.
Tanks on the streets
Confronting police
Bleeding the Plebs
Raging crowd
Burning cars
Bloodshed starts
Who'll be alive?!

Chaos A.D.
Army in siege
Total alarm
I'm sick of this
Inside the state
War is created
No man's land
What is this shit?!

Refuse, Resist
Refuse

Chaos A.D.
Disorder unleashed
Starting to burn
Starting to lynch
Silence means death
Stand on your feet
Inner fear
Your worst enemy

Refuse, Resist
Refuse, Resist

    General CommentThis song is basically about standing up for yourself as an opressed citizen(the lines: confronting police and stand on your feet seem to put this point across nicely)

    General CommentMax Cavalera was arrested and questioned more than several times in his teenage years by Brazillian police for the things he stood up for and believed in, during the writing Chaos ad, these times inspired him to write this anthem... \m/

    General CommentYeah, it's my favorite along with Beneath The Remains. But... who sings that third verse? I don't really think it's Max, or is he?
